Lucas Harashima was a 5-year-old boy with so much promise. He was an
energetic and social child, always looking to make friends and share a smile. Lucas enjoyed Martial Arts and enjoyed spending time in the dojo with his brother, Kai. Martial Arts training taught Lucas the importance of discipline, teamwork, and strength. Lucas used that strength to battle DIPG and fought valiantly. After 18 months, Lucas lost his battle, but his family picked up his fight and continue to raise awareness and money for DIPG research.
